I understand that Covid has changed the way everything is functioning but for the services that I paid 2 night stay for a total approx $320 including tax. For breakfast including a grab and go bag of an orange (not ripe), granola bar and an a muffin. I still paid full price for room stay. Our 1st floor ice machine didn't work, had to use the 3rd floor one (line to get ice). The room was overall clean but the restroom was not detail clean on tile floor so concern for overall room details. Staff encountered was nice except a female evening person who was very rude and bossy. Just wish that since the overall stay isn't the same there should have been a small discount.

Hotel's Favorite
Hotel exceeded our expectations. Super friendly at the front desk when checking in. The manager, Ross, was very personable, helpful and welcoming! We really enjoyed the bartender, I think her name was Jennifer. Let us check in early and gave us a coupon for a free drink at the bar. Great location to hit all the touristy things in Alton. Would stay here again in a heart beat!

We booked this hotel thinking they had a hot tub. After checking in we realized they do not which was a huge disappointment for us. The front desk said it was too costly to repair. I thought it was my error but even on this listing it states whirlpool as an amenity...with that said the hotel was nice. Our room was really great. Loved the decor, the bed was comfy and bathroom was good. It was a bit noisy (2nd floor facing into lobby) but the noise didn't last long and it wasn't loud late at night. I think the noise comes from the pool because it's not totally enclosed. I love that the front desk staff was friendly. Amy, server, in the restaurant was very friendly and helpful. I do wish there were more plant based options on the menu. The breakfast was nice, contintental with some hot choices (pancakes, eggs, potatoes and meat). I do like that they offer local meat for meat eaters. I also liked that it was pet friendly. I was worried our pet friendly room might be meh but it was really nice. We had a good experience. If the price was right I would stay here again.

The property is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and extra clean. I loved the atrium. The amenities in the room are extremely nice. I was there for a conference, but I almost felt like I was at home.
